Getting Involved

Making the Most of Your College Experience

How to Participate in Residence Life

Group working under tree One of the most memorable things about your time at DU will be the close connections you make to your community, and it will all start in the residence halls. Once you move in, you can meet hundreds of students from all kinds of different backgrounds, and make new friends who'll start to seem like a second family.

In addition to making friends, there are literally hundreds of ways to get more actively involved at DU.

Join Groups

With more than 100 student organizations on campus, you can find a club that matches your interests, whether you want to do service projects, learn about different cultures, or hit the slopes.

One way to have a real impact on campus is joining the Residence Hall Association. This group of student leaders helps create the on-campus living experience, from distributing care packages to giving input on renovation projects in the residence halls.

Find a Job

Along with helping pay the bills, an on-campus job can give you hands-on work experience. There are plenty of job opportunities in the residence halls for people who want to help other students.

Join One of Our Communities

Living and Learning Communities are a way for you to live and study with people who share your interests.
